Lately (as I'm sure you've noticed, if you read this blog regularly!), I've been all about the Unity. You could say I'm a Unity Junkie since I got my first order...So today's Unity Customer Challenge is right up my alley! The challenge today is a color challenge: make a card using Unity Colors (chocolate brown and teal, with a bit of cocoa thrown in...check out their website or blog if you want a visual), with the option of throwing in *one* other color. I opted not to on this card...
Are you getting the not-so-subtle subliminal message? Let's just say that tomorrow is Hip Hop Thursday in the Unity Forum, and it'd be a good time to INDULGE in a SWEET THING! *wink* If you'd like to play along with today's challenge, you'll find the post for that in forum as well after 10am CST (8am PST).
This card is also a CASE of NikiE's card that you can find here, for this weekend's Featured Stamper challenge (FS82). I used the same layout and similar colors, but changed the stamp set and the sentiment holder, using a label holder rather than a die-cut tag.
I stamped my favorite cupcake from Cupcakes a la Yummy three times on Very Vanilla, cutting each one out after coloring with Blender Pens. Then I stamped the top three times on Chocolate Chip so that the icing would be *really* chocolatey. The cupcakes are on dimensionals on their Very Vanilla panel. I stamped 'indulge' on the Creamy Caramel background using Close to Cocoa. Added some matting and a sentiment in a Hodge Podge Hardware holder, and Voila! Easy peasy card!
Have fun looking at everyone else's offerings! I finished another color card last night, which I'll have up shortly.
And before I go, I just have to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MELINDA!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PAM!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
